What size is this room? What size is the bed? - I'd love something similar to this for my study but it's a small room (10 x 10) so I don't know if it could work.

Happy new year! Thanks for your note! This room was 11x11--I drew you out on paper and this may work. You will need a full which is a smidge smaller. I like 24" from the edge of the bed to the next thing (here it is a wall to the right and the desk area to the left). So going Right to Left: dresser that's about 20"wide, 4" wide bed support, bed space, 4" wide bed support, 24" wide bookshelf and then your desk area.

I hope that helps! Send me pics when you are done! I would love to see it!

Could you tell me the room dimensions? - I'm impressed with the fantastic double duty going on in this room and am hoping to do something similar in my house. Do you have the dimensions of this room? Many thanks.

Thank you so much for your feedback! I was incredibly proud of this space when we finished! I had wanted to do this for about a year or so before the home owners finally let me. Normal people don't think like I do :)

The room is basically a big square: 11'1" x 11'1"

Good luck!

Can you tell me where you got the corner bookcases? where they purchased with the murphy bed?
What is the cost of a murphy bed design such as this?

The corner case was custom built for this room :(. If you want to email me, I can better answer the cost question. There were so many variables in this, that I wouldn't want to give you the wrong information. Jill@justjillinteriors.com

Like the built in to the right with drawers and mirror. Not a bad set up - perhaps with a tufted background?? Remember to incorporate space for the bedding and pillows.
